, obama has done none of these things in terms of picking teams. he has filled out his bracket a lot like he has governed. dispassionately and with a clear aversion to risk. >> it's a great insight. jonathan maler is a columnist at bloomberg, a friend of mine, i've been touting this piece because i love it so much. one of the points he makes is, well, in the second term, maybe obama would take more risk. but his bracket is, no. he's got indiana winning the whole thing and actually says on the air, says, well, i've got louisville going to the final four. i guess that's not a surprise. they -- jonathan points out that he didn't even pick his alma mater, harvard. >> well, who did? >> right. well, it is true that all the analysts were saying that new mexico is the real deal and then go deep in the tournament, right, and harvard knocked them off. so, yeah. it's a wonderful piece. and it sort of -- you know obama by his bracket. and it's really true. >> he wants to be right. >> yeah. >> doesn't want to be sentimental. he wants to be right. >> yeah, well, you know, one thing about the ncaa, if y

, and there was a lot of concern of that last year, really aren't great. i think the israelis understand that there's no real end state if they strike. their capacities are limited, the regional complications are immense. what they want to do is, frankly, make this barack obama's problem. and it is a challenge to the united states. we can't afford to see iran with a nuclear weapon for all kinds of reasons. it would be transformative in a negative sense for the region at large. so i think they are going to cooperate on this. obama's tenure, his legacy and his status as a lame duck are going to compete with one another and netanyahu may also be looking at the end of his tenure as a prime minister having served longer than any other prime minister in israel's history, so time is not an ally right now, it's an adversary. and i think it's going to compel both men to try to find a way to work together. >> aaron david miller, thanks so much. we appreciate it. >> thanks, carol. >>> political buzz. a look at the best political topics of the day. 30 seconds on the day. playing with us, jason johnson a politi

process, but if that can get restart and also what is going on in syria. there is great concern right now about iran's nuclear program. the entire region, in fact, seems to be in turmoil throughout north africa, and the middle east. so there is lots going on. this is president obama's first trip to israel as president of the united states, though he did visit as a candidate and earlier as a united states senator. here they come right now. we'll hear from the prime minister first, followed by the president. >> mr. president, barack, it is a great pleasure for me to host you here in jerusalem. you've graciously hosted me many times in washington. so i'm very pleased to have this opportunity to reciprocate. i hope that the goodwill and warmth of the people of israel has already made you feel at home. >> very much so. >> we had an opportunity today to begin discussing the wide range of issues that are critical to both our countries. and foremost among these is iran's relentless pursuit of nuclear weapons. mr. president, you have made it clear that you're determined to prevent iran from develo

, barack obama. mr. president. >> thank you, so much. everybody.g, secretary, thank you for administering the oath and making it official. friends, it is a great pleasure to have you here and be able house to greet some of by fellow citizens as the end -- of the united states. today you are in the people's house, a house designed by an irish immigrant. we welcome 28 men and women, immigrants themselves who from this day forward have earned the precious right to call this country home. i know this is an incredibly special moment for you, your families, but i have to say it is a special moment for the rest of us as well, because as we look out across this room, we are reminded that what makes someone american is not just their bloodlines, not just an accident of birth, it is a fidelity to our founding principles. that anyone, idea anywhere, can write the next great chapter in this american story. that is the promise of america. today we know it is alive and well in each and everyone of you. at first glance it would be easy to describe this group by their differences. they all hail from diff

security issues. on both counts, this president obama has lost. >>steve: it is curious, because if you're just watching -- if you saw the president with netanyahu yesterday, you would think they're getting along great. in the past, for all intents and purposes, it seemed like they hated each other. the fact that b.b. netanyahu used to go to school with mitt romney, that didn't help things. but there is a quote today that apparently a senior israeli official said there was -- quote -- "a tacit agreement apparently between both leaders, if not coordination, to engage in a very intense public display of affection." >>alisyn: good. fantastic. if president obama's visit to israel helps them smooth over the tensions they had in the past and forge some sort of friendship, fantastic. even if they're faking it, sometimes that works. >>brian: would you be talking to alisyn if she wasn't on television? >>alisyn: exactly. >>steve: you were talking about having a beaches brew pwao*u row and i was -- a beaches pwaou roerbgs and i was thinking i'm going to talk to her. >>alisyn: let's get to your hea

and robin, some hard-earned day off. great to have amy and paula. >> thank you very much. >> and guess who else is with us, the high-end designer who dressed everyone from julianne moore and rachel weisz to first lady michelle obama. well, now derek lam is here with a low-cost collection, affordable looks for less. we'll show them to you, can't wait for that. >> can't wait for that. can't wait for this. "millionaire matchmaker," i love this show, by the way, she plays cupid for so many on television, patti stanger is here, and you know what, has she fallen in love herself? this has been a big thing on the show so she's here with the new man in her life for their first interview together only here on "gma," and i think we'll put them to the test -- i don't know if they're expecting that. >> if there's anybody i want interviewing sam, it's patti, so i can only hope, you know -- >> you know we love our competition, and you guys know, a diver back n my college days i was excited to watch "splash" last night. it's abc's newest reality show. it's wet, wild, really fun and today we have, well, th

'm no expert in that region. but when you watch -- when you watch great powers, the single overriding mistake they make is to think they know more than they know. >> yeah. >> another big story this morning. the nation's debate on gun reform where president obama's initiative to reduce violence in america has been severely weakened. democratic majority leader harry reid announced the most controversial and ambitious part of the president's proposal a ban on assault weapons will not make the final cut when he brings the bill up for a debate. >> but, right now, her amendment using the most optimistic numbers, has less than 40 votes. that's not 60. i have to get something on the floor so we can have votes on that issue and the other issues i talked about and what i'm going try to do. i'm not going to put something on the floor that won't succeed. i want something that will succeed. >> senator dianne feinstein, who sponsored the bill, was clearly irritated. the california democrat told reporters, quote, obviously, i'm disappointed. i tried my best, but my best i guess wasn't good enough. you'd thi

. at that time, you could assume extremism would not have the ability to organize to this -- to the great extent they probably organize now. at the beginning, and i am asking yolks because you're at -- asking you because you were at these compositions, against a regime that is a supported obama -- supported by iran? i will keep it short because there is a lot i want to ask. >> to be very brief, congressman, i, personally, do not agree we waited so long. we were helping democracy activists when i'd was in syria in 2011. we were doing a lot to help them. >> what was the reason to hold legal aid at that point? >> a lot of people in syria did not want outside interference in their uprising, the revolution. for a long time. through 2011. the syrians themselves wanted their demonstrations to be peaceful. armedid not want foreign intervention. they were bitterly criticizing iran for their intervention. >> i am talking about when it came to a shooting war. i am trying to figure this out because i do not know the answer. this is a difficult quandary. let me ask another question. when we talk about the re

are designed to prevent the great united states of america from becoming greece or spain or perhaps something worse. the sky is falling. ,e also, on this committee subcommittee, had a hearing that was entitled the obama administration regulatory war on the economy. very ominous. falling,pparently is notwithstanding the fact that the administration has created about 6 million private sector jobs. today, there is a thing advanced by some, again, not questioning the views of many good faith members, but the theme is that criminals have been unleashed on the american public. the question that has been posed is, is this policy or politics? i would note parenthetically that i believe in my reading of obamand amendment, barack is constitutionally prohibited from running for office again because he was elected and reelected. i'm not sure how politics could make their way into this discussion from the electoral context. putting that aside, the issue of whether criminals have recklessly been unleashed on the american public is an interesting one. 2220 people who are at issue in terms of their release f
